Episode 4 – The Big Short: Strippers, Booms & Busts

Big Short

In this episode, we talk about stuff we’re not remotely qualified to talk about.

Thankfully, the 2015 film The Big Short is here to talk down to us about it. We discuss the film’s portrayal of the 2008 banking crash and how it applies to our potential future economy. Sly is a literal neoliberal asshole while Ryan margin calls all over the place. Phil is behind on his US history and gets some massive spoilers. Darryl on the other hand does not approve of this film’s usage of Selena Gomez.
